I would certainly be interested in the insurgents in para-military gear with ski masks or the ISIS fighter types in the first photo. Not so interested in the new Iraqi army or Peshmerga at the moment. Would be prepared to put in for a commission to Matt to make the ISIS fighters? The four in the photo would be perfect plus one with a LMG?/SAW. If you willing to put forward some cash as well could get more figures made. Interested?

Regards
Mark

Yeah I will be making a few of these insurgent types, and the Iraqi and Peshmerga prob next year though now.

Have to say these minis would be cool.

As horrific as the war in Syria/Iraq is, it offers some interesting wargaming options. E.g. usage of VBIEDS as a method of breaching fortified positions, extensive usage of drones, makeshift armour.

I'd go for Force on Force ruleset.

Virtually all troops would be D8 Troop Quality (most are similarly capable though some Iraqi troops would be D6) with main differentiator being morale:

D12 - some hardcore ISIS/Al Nusra

D10 - ISIS, Peshmerga, Al Nusra, Syrian Republican Guard, Hezbollah and some elite formations.

D8 - average Syrian or Iraqi troops, FSA, Shi'ite militia

D6 - some Iraqi army formations.

And then we can throw in US/Allied Special Forces and maybe even Russians.

Probably have to use WWII First Aide table for non-Western forces to reflect high casualty rates and often lack of medical care.
